Welcome to my blog!

I've worn many hats during my entrepreneurial journey, including writing and creating whiteboard videos, marketing, investor relations (Blurbeo), owning and managing my own vapor pen brand (TouchESubject), servicing the real estate market and other clients as the CEO of Puget Sound Field Inspections, founded CLV Investments LLC, and currently holding a position with Byte Me LLC as a Digital Marketing Consultant.

This blog was originally started as a way for me to track my progress in trading stocks, but it's has since morphed into much more. I now use it as a window into what I'm doing to reach my goal of financial freedom. You're going to see what I'm doing to create multiple streams of income, articles and interviews that are business related or featuring other entrepreneurs, and most importantly you're going to get to know me and hopefully I can inspire you to pursue your own dreams

I'm a very driven individual with a passion for customer service and improving our communities.

Please feel free to connect. I'd love to do business with you.

5% Stop Loss and $JOEZ

Vin_Trader put out four stocks to watch on 02/11 and I attempted to scalp a quick profit since it was already halfway into the trading day when I checked his blog. It was a loss for me, but not because Vin_Trader had a bad pick... his pick was actually 12% to 16% gainer for the day. There were a few things that went wrong here. One being that I had a poor entry point, I entered hoping that the stock would gain to a 20%+ gain for the day and scalp maybe 8% to 10%, that didn't happen of course and my trailing stop snagged me as the stock began its consolidation period. Which brings me to the other thing I see wrong here, looking back I think I set my trailing stop too tight at 5%. The last few times I used a 8% trailing stop. That said, if the stock drops tomorrow I should be happy with the 5% loss and lick my wounds.
